Abstract:

An instrumentation system was developed to measure and record the dynamic responses of a moving vehicle to discrete environmental factors. Measurements of force to override vegetation, drive-line torque, vehicle linear and wheel or track rotational displacement, fuel consumption, acceleration, pitch, and hydrostatic pressure were made to determine the effects imposed on the vehicle by soil and longitudinal, lateral, and vertical obstacles. The specific components of the system used for the various measurements are described and information concerning their positioning and operation is presented.
